Baloch Republican Party leader Brahumdagh Bugti, who is currently living in exile in Switzerland, is all set to get Indian citizenship, according to Pakistani media reports.
According to the reports, Brahumdagh will formally apply for Indian citizenship in Geneva, Switzerland, after a meeting of his party’s officials there on September 18-19.
The Baloch leader fled his hometown Dera Bugti in Balochistan in 2006 following the assassination of his grandfather Akbar Bugti. He lived in Afghanistan as a state guest, first, and was then flown from there to Switzerland in October 2010. He has been living there ever since, in political asylum, with his family.
